We live in Columbus, OH, and it is a 10 year old home built by M/I Homes.
We have got pre-finished hardwood flooring (natural white oak) installed in the living room and kitchen. We love it. Our carpet on the stairs and second floor is worn out. Carpet was installed by M/I.We have received quotes for installing pre-finished hardwood flooring both for stairs and second floor. Don't want to overspend.Could we keep the carpet on the stairs and install hardwood flooring in all second floor? Just for stairs, the best quote is $1,300 including material and labor. I would like to know if we do hardwood flooring, will it make it attractive for buyers. We might put the house on the market after 3 years.
We will replace the carpet on stairs. Is it ok to transition from carpet to hardwood? Does it look good?
Please provide your suggestions and comments. Thanks, Krishna123.

Carpeting on stairs is good for safety reasons, but it also is one of the biggest wear areas when it comes to carpeting. I would recommend a good quality runner on the stairs as opposed to straight carpeting. If you do go with hard woods on the second floor and bedrooms invest in some good area rugs or it will seem a little cold and noisy. Rugs will soften the wood particularly in the bedrooms.
